In all honesty, I probably wouldn't do anything different if I had to do it over because it all went so well. However, if I did it again and I were going to do something differently, I might have...

Update, bottled

So the one that I brewed October of last year (10/2010) was bottled 5 weeks ago. We cork finished it, and while it's not as pretty as it could be, it's been effective. Anyways, we had tried two or...

I didn't get an actual recipe from Vinnie, but he told me the malts they use, and I calculated the rest based on the color and gravity. It was like 6 lbs 2-row, 4 lbs Vienna, 2 lbs wheat malt, 8 oz...

Hey all, I'm brewing my first sour (modeled after Supplication) and was looking for a little advice. Got some advice from Vinny, and my recipe included about 1 lb of crystal malts (50/50 Crystal 40...

Dry Yeast Fermentation Speed

Due to laziness, I've been using a lot of dry yeast lately (US-05 or S-04) and noticed that it ferments unbelievably fast. Even with similar pitching rates after good starters for liquid yeasts, I...

You could consider experimenting on a small scale with adding some Cl (NaCl would work). It's possible that your SO4/Cl ratio from your brewing water is part of it.

Don't do a limited boil. Their RIS has close to 100 IBUs. Even if you do half the boil, and add the rest of the extract at the end to keep your utilization high, you'll dilute to 50 IBUs (since 100...

Potential House Acetobacter bug

I'm not one to write a thread freaking out that my beer is infected and ruined. On the other hand, in a few recent brews, I've been noticing a disturbing trend. I brewed a tripel 2-3 months ago,...
